An undocumented Afghan man living in the United Kingdom has been reportedly told by the Home Office that he may have to go back to Afghanistan. Ahmad, 29, arrived in the United Kingdom when he was 10 years old as an unaccompanied minor and was placed in foster care. However, for the past eight months the Afghan refugee has remained in detention. Last week, the Home Office issued a letter to Ahmad telling him he will remain in detention and that his removal to Afghanistan was pending, The Times reported. With the Taliban recently rising to power again in the war torn country Ahmad and other LGBTQIA+ Afghans are in danger of being targeted by the extremist military group. Last week, the Taliban reportedly killed a gay man by chopping up his body into pieces to show what they would do to anyone who openly identifies as LGBTQIA+ in Afghanistan.
